2 CH3OH : 2 CO2
3 O2 : 2 CO2
3 molecules CH3OH → 3 molecules CO2
3 molecules O2 → 2 molecules CO2 → limiting reactant
1 molecule CH3OH → 1 molecule CO2 → limiting reactant
6 molecules O2 → 4 molecules O2
How many CO2 molecules form from the reaction mixture that produces the greatest amount of products?
